Heathfield Community College
About the school
Heathfield Community College serves the local community from a pleasant 26 acre site on the edge of Heathfield. Our size offers us many advantages: we have excellent facilities, allowing us to offer a wide and varied range of academic and vocational courses at all levels. The Heathfield campus has been steadily improved in recent years. We have both a Library and a dedicated Sixth Form Learning Resource Centre, we also enjoy large open space and a floodlit all-weather astro-turf pitch. A rolling programme of refurbishment means we continue to upgrade and improve our site and facilities including Science rooms, Music Technology and ICT facilities, including our very own Apple-esque Genius Bar. There is also a fitness centre (adjoining the school site and run by Freedom Leisure), and multi-use games areas.
Heathfield Community College offers all students:
- A well-planned, broad and balanced curriculum
- A record of excellent examination results
- Well qualified specialist staff combining innovative and traditional methods in the classroom
- A secure, supportive, encouraging and happy environment
- A wide range of extra-curricular and residential activities.
Vision & Values
Heathfield Community College has a clear set of goals and beliefs. These were collaboratively formed and are the basis by which we conduct our everyday experience and set our long term aspirations. They are underpinned by the essence of Heathfield: Pride. Ambition. Community.
A 5 year strategic plan, formulated by College leadership and governors, is driven by these principles and translates into annual College Improvement Planning that incrementally ensures the College continues to provide the best possible environment and education for our young people.
Students from Heathfield Community College leave the College as well rounded, proactive young adults ready to be responsible citizens of the future with strong values, principles and ambition for success. This is achieved by a clear focus on the skills and attributes that we know are essential for future success in life. The exceptional exam results achieved by our students will open doors but the key to sustained future success and happiness is the ability to demonstrate the qualities that rarely appear on an exam paper.
